227_leonardo_loungingI can’t believe I’ve been going to Ile d’Or in Amboise once a month for the last 5 years and have never seen this statue of Leonardo da Vinci along the Loire. I took it from a more modest angle. Leonardo spent his last years in Amboise at Clos Lucé château at the invitation of François I.

Je n’arrive pas à croire que je vais à l’Ile d’Or à Amboise tous les mois depuis cinq ans sans avoir jamais vu cette statue de Léonard da Vinci au bord de la Loire. Je l’ai prise d’un angle plutôt pudique. Léonard a passé ses dernières années à Amboise au château du Clos Lucé à l’invitation de François Ier.

    He’s a bit scary being so large and so close to the footpath!

    @William – That’s for certain!
    @Helen – He is on a lower path along the river which we have never been on before.
    @Lesley – He’s right ON the footpath! And has a very shiny part to him which I didn’t photograph.
    @Susan – I guess we’re always going in the other direction when it’s still light.
